Holiday gatherings can be rough. Some of us find ourselves spending time with people we’d rather not be with, because that dreaded sense of obligation kicks in. Add to that the stress of deciding what to bring to an event, and it’s no wonder the holidays are the most stressful time of year.
I suggest we make our gatherings more sparkly. I recently discovered a brand of sparkling water called Waterloo. I immediately thought how their two limited-time seasonal flavors (Spiced Apple and Cranberry) would make a refreshing, non-alcoholic alternative for the holiday table.
More Bubbles, Less Bad Stuff
If you like bubbles, you’ll like Waterloo. It’s more carbonated than other brands, so sipping it gives you a lively kick.
Naturally flavored with no added sugar, Waterloo uses a multi-step filtration process that gives the purified, carbonated water a clean taste without any unwanted additives, fluoride, or sodium.
I found the Cranberry flavor to be refreshing, bright, and a bit tart. Spiced Apple offers a taste reminiscent of apple crisp. I tried it with a splash of apple cider for a hint of sweetness. The spiced flavor came through and put me in an autumnal state of mind.
If you’re looking for other Waterloo varieties, consider their offerings: black cherry, grapefruit, pineapple, watermelon, grape, strawberry, and lemon-lime, to name a few. And speaking of flavors, they’re all natural and sourced from non-GMO and vegan plant extracts, oils, and essences.
Certified Gluten-Free, non-GMO, vegan, and kosher as well as Whole30 Approved, this sparkling water comes in cans that are free of BPA.
Festive Mocktail Recipes
Enjoy this refreshing beverage ice cold. And if you’re looking for fun and tasty seasonal sippers to make at home, the Waterloo website offers recipes like Spiced Pomme Pom, ‘Loo-ner Eclipse, Spiced Apple Ginger Fizz, and Spiced Cran-Apple Punch—all made with limited-edition Cranberry or Spiced Apple.
